North Little Rock Spanish Seventh-day Adventist Company

A Brief History of Little Rock, Arkansas

The Work Begins

The North Little Rock Spanish group began meeting December 1, 2007 (Simpson, 2008). Jorge and Tina Oregon, along with a handful of other dedicated lay members, began working in the North Little Rock area to establish a new lighthouse for Spanish speaking people.  For a brief period of time, the group met in the North Little Rock English Church and then began having services at the Oregon home.  Community outreach work and Bible studies led to baptisms, growth, and to the organization of the North Little Rock Spanish Company on April 4, 2009, with 42 charter members (Newsletter, 2009). They soon began meeting in a store front location on Lynch Drive where they had more room (Newsletter, 2009). After some time, they began renting a Methodist church which gave them much more space.
